German painter and graphic artist Wolf Röhricht first studied law and graduated with a doctorate. He then began studying art and traveled to Paris, where he continued his studies in the Académie Julian. As an expressionist, or better as an expressive realist, he was considered “degenerate” during the Nazi regime, and his works were removed from museums, but he himself was never touched by the Nazis. During the last days of wartime in 1945 most of his works became lost.

After World War II, Röhricht first went to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and then worked in München. His work focused on industry representations, portraits and landscapes, and he distinguished himself mainly by his virtuoso watercolor wet-in-wet technique.
